Summer is finally here, and we’re ready for some R&R at Kush Queen. Nobody deserves a break more than you, lover, even if your bank account might say the opposite.
So whether you're jetting off to a magical city abroad or spending these hot summer days at your local watering hole, Kush Queen has the perfect infused add-ons to make this hot and sticky season worthwhile. BONUS POINT: These KQ items won't break the bank either!
Handcrafted in small batches, our "Elevated" Gummies Rx options are made with a full-spectrum hemp extract and contain 10mg CBD + 10mg Delta 8 THC per gummy. They are part of our extra strength ratio series, so we recommend consuming one gummy to start, especially if you're a canna-newb.
Expect a lifted chill with a full-body buzz and one hell of a good time when ingested; just remember to stay hydrated, babes!
For an Infused After-Sun Skincare Routine
Your skin goes through a lot this season, basking in the Sun and its glory. We get it; we’re right there with you. But it's also time we start taking extra care of our body's largest organ... Skin, meet heaven.
After a long day on the sand, it's time to bring on the bubbles with Kush Queen's infused body wash! SOAKED is the world's first psychoactive body wash that delivers a potent dose of transdermal Delta 8 THC.
SOAKED features our advanced nanotechnology formula, which shrinks THC molecules to a size smaller than your pores…so you get high through your skin. But if you'd rather skip the psychoactive part, we also offer a CBD-only SOAKED experience. Either way, your skin receives a dose of anti-inflammatory properties with each fragrant scrub.
Now it's time to moisturize. After your infused shower, your skin will be ecstatic about this next step. Seriously, we're already excited for you! Once you're ready, we recommend indulging in Kush Queen's Melt CBD relief lotion. And we mean indulge.
We've combined cooling menthol, warming capsicum, and camphor oil for a cooling/warming sensation. Once applied, you should experience a tingling feeling taking over while your skin thanks you for this gift. Topped off with a complex blend of essential oils engineered explicitly for relief, Melt effectively eases muscle tension and helps reduce redness.
For Those Pre-Boarding Jitters and Post-Vacay Blues
Ok, so maybe you're not necessarily getting on a flight; either way, vacation endings are bitter-sweet. Sure, you get to see your fur baby again, but no one's ever looking forward to playing catch up with an inbox full of emails. Don't worry; Kush Queen has a solution to those post-vacay blues.
Meet Bare+, your favorite daily wellness supplement delivering smooth energy and motivation to keep you functioning when you'd rather be sipping on a margarita. Our CBD:THCv tincture is excellent for mental focus and reducing stress, and it doesn't give consumers the munchies! Yes, you read that correctly. No munchies.
Now, if you're looking for a tincture that will act as a multivitamin post-travel, you should check out our Bare+ CBDa:CBGa formula. Packed with whole-plant goodness like phytocannabinoids and terpenes, this fabulous tincture delivers high potency cannabinoids directly to your body, providing an antiviral and antimicrobial effect.
However you decide to spend your Summer, Kush Queen has top-tier cannabinoid products for elevating the season's carefree vibes. From tinctures to edibles and everything in between, we have the perfect travel companions for the modern-day stoner.
We can’t deny our favorite time of year is here! The KQ team LOVES celebrating 420, plant-based wellness, and shining light on all the different ways to share in the holiday!
If you're reading this, you’ve probably celebrated 420 before or at the very least know the typical stoner activities on this much anticipated holiday, such as 7-gram blunts, gas masks, and ridiculously potent edibles. However, if you're feeling disconnected from the 420s of your past, don't worry because Kush Queen's here to expand the experience from its usual bro-ish vibe to create mind and body connections for genuine self-exploration.
Welcome to thoughtful cannabis consumption—don't get it twisted though, we can still smoke you under the table ;)
Having control of your experience and tapping into cannabinoids with intention is a whole new way of experiencing cannabis. Our 420 gift guide this year centers on Kush Queen's five targeted effects: Orgasmic, Chill, Lifted, Well, and Rest.
Gifts For An Orgasmic 420 Experience
Perfect For Lovers, Reconnecting, Self-Exploration
Did you know that cannabis is an aphrodisiac? These molecules help set the mood and increase blood flow to the area for heightened pleasure and electrifying sensations. Forget getting stoned and dealing with the munchies this year, instead hit up a sneaky link and have a transformative evening!
Perfect For Stressed-Out Friends, Your Mom, Playing Hooky
You’ve been stressed lately and need to decompress in a major way. The 'relax' effect delivers chill vibes perfect for decompressing on 420. And if you've never experienced our Soke and Toke, now is the perfect time!
These chill products are some of our favorites to gift to friends and family; and they're usually accompanied by a little note saying “It’s 2022, a little weed won’t hurt ;P!”. Shop the 'Relax' collection.
Gifts To Get You Lifted On 420
Perfect For Stoner Friends, Exploring The Plant, Psychoactive Effects
Let's be real the best part of 420 is blasting off into a place where rules and responsibilities don't exist. Luckily, we’ve captured that feeling of the sun washing over you and worries drifting away with our Delta 8 THC products.
Word to the wise, these products are psychoactive and will produce a euphoric buzz when consumed, so we suggest enjoying these in nature like on a beautiful hike or at the beach. Shop the 'Lifted' collection.

In celebration of the intersection of Black History Month and Women's History Month, Kush Queen is sharing our current obsessions spearheaded by inspirational Black female entrepreneurs.
You may see articles circulating that say women of color are starting more businesses faster than any other demographic. But don't be fooled by the boasting headlines. Yes, the State of Women-Owned Businesses Report does confirm Black women-owned businesses represented the highest growth rate of any other group between 2014 and 2019; however, these go-getters face a unique array of challenges to get there. Often referred to as "survival entrepreneurs" because of high unemployment rates and vast gender and racial pay gaps, the study shares women of minorities are more likely to have a "sidepreneurship" out of necessity. The venture capital space comes with even more scrutiny. Business Insider confirms “before 2021, only 93 Black female founders had raised $1 million or more in venture capital”.
At Kush Queen, we've experienced our journey as a women-owned business. It's because of your support and your support only that we exist in today's cannabis market. We know the struggles of being a small business in America, and the best thing we can do as a community is to continue supporting the businesses we want to see succeed. Our dollars truly are our power.
With that in mind, we'd like to highlight 3 of Kush Queen's Favorite Black Women-Owned Businesses:

KNC Beauty makes our favorite eye masks of all time. You won't regret having these beauties in your bathroom. We love to use them before a big night out or while we're soaking in a Kush Queen bath bomb. Founded by beauty and fashion influencer Kristen Noel Crowley, KNC Beauty also created the KNC School of Beauty to address the inequities in the beauty industry.
Crowley has expressed in the past “as a Black female entrepreneur, it has always been extremely important to me to pay it forward and provide opportunities for emerging talent in our community. Having a skincare brand has always been a dream of mine and I’m excited to support other Black businesswomen who share similar goals and visions.”

Snocorner is a Long Beach-based storefront, specializing in New Orleans-style snowballs. As Louisiana natives, we can't get enough of this delicious local treat. Sure it looks like Hawaiian ice, but New Orleans-style snowballs are different. Trust us.
Visit their storefront in Long Beach and taste this delicious southern treat for yourself. Interestingly enough Snocorner is a legacy Long Beach business, its current owner Ashley Monconduit is the third generation to own a business at this location!

Maya's Cookies is the number one Black-owned Gourmet Vegan cookie company in America. Founded by a vegan with a self-proclaimed sweet tooth, Maya Madsen launched Maya's Cookies after several unsuccessful searches for that soft, chewy, freshly-baked vegan cookie she badly desired. Madsen spent years crafting her award-winning recipes, including her "Chocolate Chip S'mores" and "Marble Fudge".
You can visit their San Diego storefront or order online. Recently, Maya's Cookies released their Black History Collection, which was inspired by inspirational figures such as Chadwick Bosman, Michelle Obama, and Uncle Nearest.
Taking a page from the crypto world, we encourage our readers to continue doing their own research before investing their powerful currency into companies that don't necessarily align with their moral values. Supporting minority-owned companies, more specifically Black women-owned businesses, remains a priority within Kush Queen's roadmap and company culture. As a society striving for change, we must develop more conscientious shopping habits if we really want to make a difference.

At Kush Queen, our hope for the cannabis industry is for those within it to be as diverse as the people who use this plant.
We started this company with infused bath bombs because we recognized how approachable this product is and how much a stigma breaker it could be. Destigmatizing cannabis, and the people who use it, has always been our mission as a brand.

In honor of Black History Month, we at Kush Queenare celebrating the incredible individuals working towards and advocating for real change in cannabis - more specifically, for a socially equitable space. With skyrocketing taxes and very little support, the disenfranchised communities (whose backs this industry was built on) are sadly getting left behind. The truth is the cannabis industry as a whole has a long, long way to go before becoming the equal playing field it needs to be. Thankfully, these inspiring and selfless Black entrepreneurs are working incessantly towards making social equity in cannabis a reality.
Successful Reality Television Executive turned Cannabis Industry CEO
Whitney Beatty is a woman of many talents. After leaving her career in entertainment, she founded Apothecarry, a luxury accessories company for the modern-day smoker. Then, inspired by the golden days of Jazz and cannabis Teapads, Beatty opened Josephine & Billies, the first dispensary in the country designed by and for women of color. Beatty secured the first equity investment from The Parent Company (TPCO), California's largest vertically integrated omnichannel cannabis platform, where Jay Z is the Chief Visionary.
Beatty currently sits on the board of Supernova Women, an organization working for equity in the legal cannabis space.
On top of it all, she is an inspiring and hilarious mother sharing her life on social media. Beatty is a powerhouse in every sense of the word, and the cannabis industry is better with her in it.
The #RapPriestess, also known as the West Coast Wave Goddess
We have admired, followed, and enjoyed the work of Lizzy Jeff for years.
A cannabis OG, rap priestess, medicine woman, and founder of Zen and Kush, Lizzy Jeff delivers plant medicine, spirituality, and community in one erotically delectable serving. Her unique events nationwide feature healing, sensuality, community-building, education, and wellness workshops. These events aren't called an after-dark experience for no reason; this is Ascension at its finest and most seductive.
Our bath bombs are often made to her music as it's commonly on repeat at Kush Queen headquarters. We are constantly inspired by her passion for activism and her celebration of the divine feminine.
Give Lizzy Jeff a follow for alternative ways to heal that embraces masculine and feminine energies while connecting you deeper to your spiritual roots.
Startup Advisor, Accountability Keeper, and Co-Founder in Cannabis, Tech, and Wellness
Mary Pryor is one of the most powerful women in the cannabis industry. Pryor is an activist, media expert, and the founder of Cannaclusive, a platform created to facilitate fair representation of minority cannabis consumers.
If you haven’t heard of Pryor’s work with Cannaclusive, then this is your intro. Cannaclusive is currently working to solve the industry's biggest issues: diversity, equity, and part of its namesake - inclusion. Her work with the Accountability List, a living breathing document that holds cannabis companies accountable, is some of the most important work currently taking place in cannabis.
Pryor has appeared in and contributed to countless publications like Refinery 29, New York Times, and Instyle; her piece on diversity in cannabis for SELF is one of our personal favorites.
The Ivy Leaguer and Former Athlete turned Cannabis Maven
Nadir Pearson, a graduate of Brown University and founder of Student Marijuana Alliance for Researchand Transparency, is one to watch in cannabis. A leader, advocate, and entrepreneur, he has worn many impressive hats in his young career.
Inspired by sneakerhead culture, Pearson founded Get Hybrid, the cannabis industry’s first release date calendar where you can find new cannabis drops and product launches in one place. Pearson’s accomplishments have been featured in Forbes and Huff Post; he’s also a very talented writer himself.
One thing we love about Pearson is that he thrives on creating educational cannabis content. He is certainly the future of the industry and we cannot wait to see what big things he does in the future.
Award-winning Business Coach, Strategist, and Serial Entrepreneur
Sabrina Peterson dedicated herself and her businesses to be a powerhouse for female empowerment- socially and financially.
Peterson turned facing a 23-year indictment into Pretty High Co, making CBD and cannabis products. She is a mother and content creator who is always making us laugh while feeling inspired. Peterson is undoubtingly a champion for women and people of color in cannabis.
Late last year, Peterson invited Kush Queen out to a weekend cannabis educational workshop for women and we left oozing with excitement for how she brings opportunities, shares education, and keeps things transparent about the industry.
It takes great courage and tenacity to go against the cannabis corporate machine. Through the community these amazing advocates continue to build, these inspirational cannabis professionals are aiding in creating visibility, changing the stigma, and opening doors for more BIPOC individuals to come.
